It doesn't matter. Nothing has changed. Biden made it easier for labor to organize sure but not much has changed. That's why you can blame Clinton and Obama for things you really should be blaming on Reagan Bushs and TrumpLet's just say I believe your side has won so I don't know why you're complaining. Labor costs are low. CEO's are highly paid and they deserve it. Taxes are low.You guys only want freedom for things you like. Free to smoke pot? Not if you had your say. Free to marry someone of the same sex? Not if you had your way.Freedom shmeedom. I'm for a government that takes care of the masses. One that doesn't let the rich rule. Liberal progressive Democrats are for we the people. Conservatives are for every man for himself. You call it freedom? Free to take over our government because they have enough money to do so?By the way, Trump only had 2.3% growth in 2019. Looks like his tax break in 2018 didn't work.The days when you could get out of high school, work at the plant for 40 years, let your wife stay home and raise 6 kids, then retire at 65 are long gone. They will not return. The global market and automation has changed all of that.Tell that to the blue collar worker who worked for Ford or GM and made great pay but then his job was sent to Mexico or China.Yes. From tax breaks that benefit the rich and shift the tax burden more on to us, or lead to cuts in social services and programs to turning a blind eye to illegal employers to allowing companies to move their operations overseas so ceo's, shareholders and consumers can benefit at the expense of American workers.What is “wealth distribution”?
Do Lefties really believe that Father Government or some higher power is “distributing” or handing out wealth? It doesn’t make any sense that people make different decisions and choose different pathways in life which lead them to different levels of wealth?
We hear Lefties always whining about these things and I always wonder why. I can’t wrap my head around how my quality of life is different because my neighbor makes more than I do and or has accumulated more wealth than I have.
I’m hoping sealybobo and rightwinger and some of the other beggars will get in here and make sense out of it all.
Kroger grocery company CEO Rodney McMullen cut COVID-19 hazard pay for food workers last year just months into the pandemic — then scooped up a record $22.4 million in compensation for himself, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
McMullen’s pay package was revealed Thursday in a regulatory filing. His compensation rose almost 6% from the prior year, padded by a bigger bonus, a salary hike and stock awards, Bloomberg noted. That was McMullen’s biggest take ever since he became CEO in 2013.
What other ways have the rich waged class warfare on us? If Kroger employees were unionized, that CEO wouldn't have gotten $22 million. He would have got $11 million and Kroger employers would get the other $11 million.
Another indoctrinated government school grad.
Here, in America, there is no perennial class of 'the rich.'
"...economic mobility. About 60 percent of the households that were in the lowest income quintile in 1999 were in a higher quintile ten years later. During the same decade, almost 40 percent of the richest households fell to a lower quintile. This is a nation where you can rise or fall. It is a nation where you can climb the economic ladder based not on who you are born to, or what class you are born into, but based on your talents, your passion, your perseverance, and the content of your character." https://imprimisarchives.hillsdale.edu/file/archives/pdf/2013_05_Imprimis.pdf
Taxation ended it.
Add up federal, local, state, fees, fines, etc., and see how half your income goes to these folks:
"But he did identify what he called “tactical lessons.” He let himself look too much like “the same old tax-and-spend liberal Democrat.” Education of a President (Published 2010)
"Dan Rostenkowski, standing next to the candidate in front of the cameras and the cheering crowd at the convention after the fateful speech, whispered to Mondale, "You've got a lot of balls, pal." According to Rostenkowski, Mondale whispered back, "Look at 'em, we're going to tax their ass off." Mondale says: "We're going to tax their ass off"

“We're Going to Tax the Hell Out of the Wealthy”
I'm kinda interested in freedom, liberty.
The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism,
opposition to free speech,
substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry,
support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists,
accepting payment from Communist China for future considerations,
and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.
And, perhaps you can offer your analysis of which Trump policy turned Americans against his policies.
Well.....you could if there were any.
Otherwise we're left with the theft of the election explanation.
The motto of Democrats, Communists, Fascists, Socialists, Nazis, Progressives, fools.
Let me explain it to you on a level you may understand:
The Dog and the WolfA gaunt Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he happened to meet a House-dog who was passing by. "Ah, Cousin," said the Dog. "I knew how it would be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you. Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?"
"I would have no objection," said the Wolf, "if I could only get a place."
"I will easily arrange that for you," said the Dog; "come with me to my master and you shall share my work."
So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together. On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Dog's neck was very much worn away, so he asked him how that had come about.
"Oh, it is nothing," said the Dog. "That is only the place where the collar is put on at night to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one soon gets used to it."
"Is that all?" said the Wolf. "Then good-bye to you, Master Dog."
Better starve free than be a fat slave.
What you want is the Insurance company to be free to deny people because of pre existing conditions. You want the corporations to be free to pollute and create monopolies.
One day you cry unconstitutional and the next day you are attacking people's first amendment rights.
You're a hypocrite.
I can be more precise:
The Founders, classical liberals, conservatives
a. individualism, free markets, and limited constitutional government.
“free markets, free voices, free people”
Fascists, Nazis, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Democrats
b. the collective, command and control regulation of private industry, and overarching government that can order every aspect of the private citizen's life....right down to control of his thoughts and speech.
None of the totalitarian forms of political plague have the slightest concern for human life: not communism (gulags), not Nazism (concentration camps), not Liberalism (abortion), not Progressivism (eugenics), not socialism (theft), not fascism (murder).
The Democrats check every one of those boxes.
They only differ in the final outcome: slavery, serfdom, or death.
Me? I basically have surrendered. If you can't beat them, join them. There was a time I was paid what everyone else was paid. Hard to get by on that pay. And I don't have any kids and never had any student debt. I have lived my life exactly the way Republicans would say to. Save 401K. So I have. Have the masses? Nope. So it is clear that today's masses don't have it as good as the baby boomer generation had/has it. They gave themselves great pay and pensions and when they retired or amassed a fortune they decided that we can't afford to have it as good as them.
If I would have went to work at Ford when I was 17 and graduated highschool I would have retired 3 years ago with a 30 year pension. Today I have way more than a half million and 15 years left to save more. Do you? Do the masses? And even as good as I have it, remember I have to now work till I'm 65. If I would have went to work for a union I would have saved all that time and money going to college and retired at 47.
You Americans are suckers.
"Let's just say I believe your side has won..."
So you missed the news about the stolen election???????
